      Good product leadership, lots of positive changes


      political, hierarchal, lots of fear and calls to authority frequently used as leverage

        Business Outlook


        The only 2 things that come to mind are 1) We have a union!!! And 2) the [unearned] prestige that comes with the “name”


        1. Horrible comp. every engineer here could make 2x as much at a small tech company easily. (But we’re stuck here out of fear of getting laid off elsewhere) 2. While we have a union, we’re not able to take advantage of that as much yet because leadership keeps stalling. They are not acting in good faith, and have actually committed blatant status quo violations (changing our working conditions by mandating return to office, removing COVID vaccination requirements for entering the building, surveilling our badge data and using it for performance reviews, removing conference budgets). Even the NLRB has warned them of their behavior and no change has seen in response. 3. The insidious racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. is disgusting, especially for a place that thinks so highly of itself. 4. Engineering culture - NYT has been around for 170+ years and the state of its technology reflects that. It’s impossible to get anything done here in a way that’s sustainable. 5. No career growth once you get to the senior title.

      Assistant Director of Education and Training

      Just finished an application to a university that required me to enter all my work experience twice. First under employer history then AGAIN under work history. I am hoping no one else is that persistent or stubborn and I will be the only applicant! Oh, and you had to attach your resume too.
